About the music

I keep thinking about the song I've got on this site. I'm not a country fan so I'm surprised at myself. The lyrics are 'country' ... but to me they do paint a picture I find very romantic. Upon a little analysis I wonder why ...

If a guy told me that I was his 'kind of rain', I'd want to buy it! ... now then, what about 'confetti fallin' from a drunken sky' ? I love the line in the song, BUT really!!! Is that really something I can get my mind around as romantic? (It must be the way Tim says it!)

So to you writers ( or to any woman ) ... Is the timber of voice more important than the words, or what a man says ...? Or is it the picture he paints? The question is up for discussion.

And thanks to Erica for her comment on the last question.

  1. That song is nonsensical yet romantic at the same time. Weird. Must be a combination of the words, the tone, the man in the cowboy hat...

    The first time I heard his "Where the Green Grass Grows", I *hated* the line about corn popping up, but I lurved the line that went:
    [I'm gonna] point our rocking chairs towards the west

    Why? I dunno. I guess because it sounds a) peaceful, b) like he enjoys companionship, and c) like he's looking forward to growing old together.

    Or maybe that's me interpreting what I want out if it. *g
